Heffers Games

An evening of board games, prizes, pizza and revelry until 3am!

The event:

Come join us at 7pm on Saturday April 28th to celebrate International Tabletop Day and the fifth year anniversary for our games events “Board Games at the Bookshop” with an evening of board games, prizes, pizza and revelry until 3am! We have some amazing prizes to give away, including sealed copies of Dark Souls and Gloomhaven to name a few!

Tickets this year will be £8 (£5 for members) and there will be lots of pizza, prizes and plenty of gaming throughout the night and into the early morning, not to mention a whopping 20% off all purchases and a host of fab RPGs and party games to try out.

Tickets will go on sale on Friday 23rd March at 8pm and we will be repeating our goody bag offer for the first 50 tickets sold. Tickets will be available by accessing the following link:


As a perk to attendees of our games nights, if you are attending the games event in the shop on the 23rd March you will be able to purchase tickets from as early as 6:30pm, giving you a stronger chance to net one of the goody bags!

As with previous years there will be a discounted rate for members of Board Games at the Bookshop and this year this will be represented by a Membership Entry ticket type. Please select this option if you have a membership card or will have one on the day of the event.

The shop:

Heffers has been selling books in Cambridge since 1876 and is part of the fabric of the historic city centre. Now part of the Blackwell’s group, we pride ourselves on being a proper bookshop, packed with a vast range of titles from all kinds of subjects to explore, and with knowledgeable and friendly booksellers who are ready to offer advice and recommendations.

Our huge Children’s department is the best in the area! Heffers Bookshop now also has the biggest games selection in the city!

We stock a fantastic selection of board games, RPGs and games accessories and even run a regular games night called Board Games at the Bookshop. These events run fortnightly and play host to an array of open gaming, RPGs and tournaments.

We are committed at Heffers to helping the board game community grow and if we don’t have something in stock we will try to get it for you!
